Northumbria - University website design and build

University website design and build


We were referred to Northumbria University, London Campus, by members of the QA Higher Education marketing team. Within three weeks of meeting them, we had already started designing the brand new website. After twelve weeks, the site was live and fully functioning. While we don’t advise rushing projects, we were delighted with being able to deliver this site at pace. 



The marketing team that we were liaising with in London were extremely collaborative. They understood that, in order to deliver this site on time, everyone would need to work closely together. After an initial project scoping session, both the creative and technical requirements of the site were fully understood. At the same time as modernising the current brand, the studio team took into consideration best practice “material design” techniques, marrying different design elements with front-end development and animation. We also included innovations like easily updated courses, CRM integration and enquiry data capture - not to mention a nifty interactive campus tour via Google Maps.    

“This was a big task to complete in such a short timeframe. The team at the tree responded quickly to our brief and drove the project from day one. They even allowed for creative user-experience innovations that we hadn’t expected, like hover states and iconography. They’ve taken what we had and future-proofed it for the foreseeable future.”
